Time is truly important. It's important for your family, your friends, and for yourself. It's also critical when it comes to saving a life. Why not use time to your advantage? Begin by making a commitment to learn a very valuable skill which could make that all important difference between life and death.
The skill is known as CPR. CPR stands for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, a basic skill which provides mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in conjunction with chest compressions. This simple skill can adequately sustain the heart and lungs of a person who has fallen victim to a cardiac arrest.
CPR is easily learned and can be performed on anyone suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest. It only requires a few short hours of classroom work along with the practical applications to fully understand and perform CPR.
The Gurnee Fire Department is currently not offering CPR/AED classes. If classes resume in the future, information will be posted to this page.
